Well, I knew about the a-a, but I thought the stress was on the second a. Like sa-A-la-ngal /sa''alaNal/. Now I know better... (The first ' is stress, the second ' is a glottal stop. :) Oh, and {ng}, is that a velar or a palatal nasal? I read somewhere that {ng} is palatal in Tagalog. Is that right? And please tell me that Tagalog is pronounced /ta'galOg/... Daniel
